Choosing which chapters to include in the downloaded plan

You can customize the outline of your plan, adding and removing chapters, sections, and topics to reflect your business model. And once you have your plan outline as you like it, you can choose which chapters to include when you download the plan for printing or sharing.

You might, for example, want to exclude chapters you haven't written yet. Or maybe you want to download a version of your plan that only includes the financial plan information. You can create these customized downloads and change them, at any time.

Note: This option applies to full chapters only. If you choose to exclude a chapter from a download, then all sections and topics in that chapter will also be excluded.
If you need to remove sections or topics, see this article instead.


  1. In the Plan section, click Doanload & Print, near the top-right of your LivePlan window:

  2. Locate the Setup section in the lower right corner of the page. In the Chapters area, click Edit:

  3. You can Select all chapters or Select none by using the links near the top of the overlay. Alternatively, click the check boxes next to individual chapter titles to toggle them on or off. All chapters with check marks will be included in the downloaded plan:

  4. Finally, you can choose to include or exclude chapters that are currently empty in your plan outline (meaning, you haven't written them yet.) To include these empty chapters, sections, and topics in the printed copies, simply tick the box next to "Include empty chapters.

    Note: Keep in mind that, if you've selected a chapter that is currently empty, and you've also un-checked the box for "Include empty chapters" (below), that empty chapter won't be included.
